Adelén: ‘Olé’

Norwegian pop ICON Adelén has landed what’s arguably her biggest gig yet. She’s got a song on the official 2014 FIFA World Cup album. It’s called ‘Olé‘ and it is thankfully LARGE enough to live up to that Big Gig. The single is released today, worldwide.

Where do we start? WELL. It contains the lyric “My name is Adelén, from Rio to Bailén – now let me see some hands“. So you know precisely what you’re getting into here. Some hardcore amazingnessness. Lots of the typical staples of the World Cup Anthem are in place here. It’s big on the drums, massively influenced by latino pop, it’s got a hugely singalong chorus, and as you may have guessed from the song title – it’s got a fair bit of “olé” in there too.

Quite simply – it may well be the best thing to ever happen to the sport.

‘Olé‘ was written and produced by Adelén’s usual collaborators – Ina Wroldsen and Quiz & Larossi respectively. And it also contains a sample of Steam’s 1969 US number 1 ‘Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye‘ – which has been used since by Bananarama and Kristinia DeBarge!

The video will be released IMMINENTLY. For now though, here’s the audio of the track;
